LSU Players dominate NFL Draft Day
LSU's former QB, JaMarcus Russell, was the #1 draft pick by the Oakland Raiders yesterday. I think JaMarcus will serve the Oakland Raiders well because he is used to playing big time SEC football. JaMarcus is built very strong. I have seen so many times JaMarcus shrug off multiple tacklers and still manage to break free and throw a completion.
If you watched any of the NFL draft yesterday, you couldn't help but notice all the LSU football highlights. It was not your imagination. There was a record FOUR LSU players chosen in the first round. That is a testament to how highly regarded our football program is. I would like to say the LSU Tigers are now almost a semi-pro team. We'll likely run roughshod through the SEC this Fall and beat the Florida Gators in Baton Rouge to jump to #1 in the BCS. You heard it here first!
Top SEC football programs can adequately prepare players for the NFL. In fact, at last weeks' San Francisco 49ers draft briefing, the personnel director Scot McCloughan said the Southeastern Conference was "hands down" the best college football league in the land.
Personally, I was not surprised that Notre Dame's former QB Brady Quinn fell all the way down to pick #22 (Cleveland Browns.) The best NFL prospects are going to come from big time football programs that dominate others. There is simply no comparison to playing in the SEC and playing for Notre Dame (or USC for that matter).
Okay. Go back to your gardening or drinking your Cosmos. I know you out there don't really care about sportssss. ;)
